Strategic solar partnership formed
Urban Group Energy and Solar Juice have formed a strategic partnership.
A strategic partnership between Urban Group Energy (UGE) and Solar Juice has been announced.
The venture involves the integration of UGE’s SolarFund wholesale solar division with Solar Juice’s national wholesale operation, while UGE will facilitate all future STC trading on behalf of Solar Juice and its customers.
The move allows each company to focus on individual strengths and consolidate their core businesses for the benefit of the retail solar industry, by offering access to an expanded range, improved supply chain and competitive pricing for wholesale products, coupled with an expanded, more flexible range of STC trading services and options.
The move also recognises the challenges faced by the retail solar industry as it evolves to develop a more sustainable business model in the post feed-in tariff environment.
John Walters, national sales manager for Urban Group Energy, will join the team at Solar Juice to facilitate the change and ensure a seamless transition.
